As avaliações de clientes, incluindo as avaliações do produto por estrelas, ajudam os clientes a saberem mais sobre o produto e a decidirem se é o produto certo para eles.
Para calcular a classificação geral por estrelas e o detalhamento percentual por estrelas, não usamos uma média simples.

It's the American design's mid-century farm house on the African savannah after a fling with a Moroccan Turk --but the disgner doesn't really have any friends of color...not REALLY. OK. I don't know that , and it's irrelevant. But it's not. The book is attractive, but ilooks like a furniture catalog and is somehow really boring-- like Pottery Barn best ever or a William Sonoma Home catalog. Like mass-produced unique objects. Laid back and down-to-earth, are rarely, if ever boring. But somehow, this book is. I did buy the Habitat book too. As we're able to get out more, I think the purchases were a product of COVID nesting.
At first glance, this book has beautifully evocative photos of interiors that are sublimely rustic, yet elegant. That said, if you look more closely, the book exemplifies her decorating projects and features her textiles and furnishings. Hmmmmm. So is Abrams now publishing catalogs? Disappointing as is.
There were a few ideas but I'm not a fan of her textiles especially curtains. I did like much of her writing & can appreciate that she has a style that appeals to many followers. The book it's self it either not well printed or the colors did not come out as well as they do in the magazines as I recognized & have clipped a number of the pages from them which appear brighter & more lively. i wouldn't recommend this book for the reason of poor quality.
If you like the cover of this book then you will really enjoy the first 30 pages or so. You will see this same shot repeated dbl. spread on pages 4/5, again dbl. spread pgs.12/13, again pg. 23, again dbl. spread pgs. 26/27 and AGAIN dbl. spread pgs. 28/29!!! Right off the bat, that is just a little too much real estate taken up on one room! The following rooms, in the same house, all begin to look alike. It felt kind of like Groundhog Day. To be fair, I am only about 1/2 through the book and there is a little more variety to follow. However, the text becomes repetitive as well. You can only say "bring the outdoors in" and use "elements of nature" in so many different ways, so many times. I do love the concept of having a down to earth vibe in the home, using organic pieces, minimal accessories, and greenery throughout, which is why I purchased this book. And, some of the photography is beautiful and helpful in attaining ideas for this particular aesthetic. But, as other reviewers have noted, most of the furnishings, light fixtures, rugs, and accessories are not affordable pieces for average homeowners. Unfortunately, this book lost my attention and interest once the same photos were repeated over and over again and everything began to look the same.
Thinner and more repetitious in photos than Habitat. A slightly different and pared down aesthetic, which was nice to see but didn’t feel as dynamic as the previous book. Would have liked to see more of the authors work displayed. Very beautiful if you enjoy the designers aesthetic but felt a bit low on content. She’s very talented and her look is distinct but this just felt a tad like an Instagram vs a design book. The bathroom section is excellent.
The first book was amazing!! I have it on my coffee table and peruse it often. I was so excited about this book and wanted to love it just as Much...but I didn’t. There was something lacking, I kept looking for that wow room, but didn’t find it. This is definitely personal preference so just buy it and decide for yourself.
im Rewriting my review with an upgrade. It still is weaker than most design books. I’d say her OG account is pretty worthwhile. Having finished this book I think I saw things worth the 30$ investment. Strongest point is to help you train your eye to see beauty in nature’s and laying close at hand in unexpected places.
